But we’re not a shop at all

Currency exchanges are everywhere. Travel money providers too. The challenge is finding one that you can trust, who offers the best price and is near you.

At The Currency Shop, we don't sell currency, but we sure know a lot about the industry.

In fact, we poured all our knowledge into our smart comparison engine. It’s what keeps our visitors coming back time and time again.

Because we closely vet each provider and only show the very best deals, our visitors can easily find the right provider for them in just a few taps. We then display all the options and highlight the fees and rates per provider. It’s simple really.

It’s a work in progress too. We’re constantly adding new functionality to the site so visitors can easily find the information they need, without the clutter. And people are loving our free service. The best thing about it, they say, is that it slashes their research time and restores their confidence in the decision-making process.

So please explore our site. Alongside our comparison engine, we’ve also got tons of helpful videos, guides and reviews that will help you make informed currency decisions.
